Just 10 minutes ago I walk out of my room, come back in a few minutes later and my computer was off. I tryed turning it back on and all all i got was my power light blinking and no sound of fans or a post.
So i unplugged everything, opened the case and everthing looked fine.
I plugged the computer back in and it started up fine.
I can't think of what it could be other than my power supply. I check my voltages and they are:
CPU Core 1.47 V
+3.3 V 3.20 V
+5 V 5.00 V
+12 V 11.92 V
-12 V -11.95 V
-5 V -5.10 V
+5 V Standby 4.95 V
VBAT Battery 3.54 V
They seem fine too me. So what do you guys think it could be?

MSI Neo-Fis2r

Sapphire 9800pro 128mb

Right-click on your desktop screen, then choose properties. Go to Screen Saver tab and click on Power button. Check your settings, your PC maybe went into a standby or hibernate mode.

ORR, you could just check your system logs.

That would tell you exactly what happened...or at least it should.

Blinking led usually means the PC is in standby/hibernate mode.
